In this Pathbreaking Work Originally Published in 1980, George Rude Examines the Role Played by Ideology in a Wide Range of Popular Rebellions in Europe and the Americas from the Middle Ages to the Early Twentieth Century. Rude was a Champion of the Role of Working People in the Making of History, and Ideology and Popular Protest was the First Book Devoted to the Comparative Study of Popular Political Ideas and Consciousness in Both Preindustrial Cultures and the Age of the Industrial Revolution. According to Rude, the Development of Modern Revolutionary Struggles Depended on a Crucial Merger of the Culture and Ideas of the Common People with the Radical Ideologies of Intellectuals. In a New Foreword, Harvey Kaye Reviews Rude's Career as a Pioneer in the Critical Study of Social Movements and Highlights the Enduring Value of Ideology and Popular Protest as a Classroom Text.
